What’s so great about VoLTE
You probably already know what LTE is, it stands for Long-Term Evolution .
VoLTE on the other hands stands for “Voice over Long-Term Evolution.” It is a standard for high-speed wireless communication for mobile phones and data terminals.
With its support, users can access HD voice calls. Without VoLTE support, you can only access data or internet features. So therefore, mobile with VoLTE support can be used to make HD calls.
